Saving Lives & Limbs


Midwest Aortic & Vascular Institute physicians
diagnose and treat a wide variety of vascular disorders,
from complex aortic aneurysms to varicose veins.

Recognized for their innovative surgical techniques,
commitment to education and awareness, and research
to advance treatment options, its board-certified
surgeons work as part of a comprehensive team
of specialists to deliver the highest quality care.


It is estimated that about 20 percent of people 65 and older have some form of aortic and vascular disease, but only about 25 percent of them are receiving treatment. As if that news isn't concerning enough, the disease is also on the rise. Fortunately for those living in the Midwest, the MAVI physicians are committed to increasing education to prevent the disease, identifying and treating a higher percentage of those with the disease and leading advances in research to most effectively treat the disease.
